ATHN Data Quality Counts is helping ATHN Affiliates enrich the ATHNdataset.

The promise of using data for research, surveillance, and quality improvement relies on data that is complete and accurate. ATHN Data Quality Counts provides the critical funding needed to build data management capacity across the ATHN Affiliate Network and enrich the ATHNdataset.

The application phase of Round 13 of ATHN Data Quality Counts (DQC) is now closed.
